forth in [Plaintiff’s] many filings.” (Id. at 2). This Court agrees. Because the Motion is
prohibited under S.D. Ohio Civ. R. 7.2(a)(2), the Motion shall be disregarded by this Court.
Accordingly, Defendants’ Motion is GRANTED IN PART. (Doc. 42).

for consideration. Consequently, until this Court issues a Report and Recommendation on the
